  • Notes 
    • Not long after his marriage there was a movement of Quakers from Pennsylvania to Frederick County, Virginia. Thomas went with these Quakers and was one of the founding fathers of the Hopewell Monthly Meeting north of Winchester in Frederick County . This was in 1734.

      His father had a land grant of 600 acres on Apple Pie Ridge, near Babb's Run, northwest of Winchester. Thomas settled there and was joined by his brother, Phillip. At his father's death they inherited this land.

      Thomas died 11/04/1760. His will was proved 11/04/1760. He left the home place to his son, Sampson, and other bequest to his other children. His wife, not being mentioned, is believed to have already died.

      The first lovely old home belonging to Thomas was called "The Great Marsh Plantation", now known as The Babb-Purcell-Janney House. It dates to 1735. Great Marsh is located on the north side of route 673 between route 522 and the Apple Pie Ridge Road in Frederick, Virginia.

      The second home named "The Brick House" is a lovely old brick mansion and dates also to 1735. It is located west of the Apple Pie Ridge Road and south of route 672 on Babb's Run. This is also in Frederick, Virginia.
